You and me both it seems! It can be tricky sometimes getting the tone right. You can't guarantee that the way it sounds in your head is going to be the way it sounds in someone else's, alas. All I meant was that we're in the Grateful Dead forum and this place has a long and noble history of smartassedness, banality, tomfoolery, drastically off-topic hijacking, deviation, repetition, WTFery, and just every now and then something of passing interest concerning the Grateful Dead. Got to take it for what it is or not at all.

If I were faint-hearted I would have stopped posting long ago. I love this place; it's sort of the only outlet I have for my deep love for this band. Beyond that, it's a healthy collection of weirdos who never fail to make me mutter things like "what the f**k are they talking about?!" before contributing a little stupidity of my own.

"being a little more droolingly, knuckle-dragging moronic?"

Rob, I've had the "drooling k-d moron" meter pegged for sometime now. It can't be that.

I cannot figure why some people find this forum intimidating. It was once a bit more wild-west. Dire and Tito(it's still not about fuckin' rainbows and unicorns people.) and TT and Loogy and Smi2les.....those were some wild(er) times.

Now, I'd say this place is rather tame and the inmates are quite well behaved. Much like a GD audience. OK, maybe not the 9/19/70 audience. "Go fuck somebody!!"??

Remember when Liam died?

Remember when Dire was trapped with a broken leg like Jimmy Stewart and LMA was his Rear Window?

On the other side of the coin you'll find grace and compassion:

Remember all the admissions of dubious behavior which have been confessed here. Remember that each has been met with care and understanding.

Remember all the healing vibes sent to those who were ill, addicted or who lost a loved one.

I guess it's a slice of life. You take the good, you take the bad, you take them all and there you have.....The Facts of Life! OK, now I need a cheese-squeegee.

Irony, Mr Flow, just irony.

Yes, we've had our share of moments around here haven't we? I don't think this is an intimidating place so long as you recognise you're inevitably going to get called out about something at some point and you have to learn to suck it up and spit it out. But you're right, no matter how much snarking goes on we do have a tendency to gather round the flag when a brother (or sister) goes down. I do remember the good things. I don't think I'm the only person for whom Dire, unwittingly, unintentionally, was the focus of the forum experience. For a long time he, and William Tell, by and large made this place. The times they are a-changing...

Yep, he does post there...what bothers me about it (I do post there once a week or so) is that he'll post some interesting post, multiple paragraphs, and get NO responses...maybe a "nice job" by Bill (userunk), but there just isn't the back and forth that folks like me (and BE methinks) enjoy...daresay "require"? I think that having "moved on from here" (in the spirit of HFlow's accounting, I fear), he is too hard headed to return. We became fairly "close" over there, but haven't interacted in a few months...

I don't think I could nail down a particular time when Dire and I (or indeed you and I) locked in as it were. But I'd say that looking back over the early posts we were perhaps a little tentative and took some time to establish our forum 'voices'. Some supremely confident (or foolish) posters go steaming right in, engines on full ahead and cannon primed.

For my part of it, I was impressed from day one; your writing skills, in fact, intimidated the crap out of me, and I wished dearly for a sp checking system (easily!) at hand, as well as more time to refine my posts. I only wish the efforts had actually had some recognizable influence on my subsequent posts.

But, at the same time, and to keep this from becoming too much of a Tell All Love Fest (har), I think that the two of us experienced, to a greater extent than in hindsight it seems we should have, a handful of "misunderstandings/miscommunications" that by shear force of will (I guess we both thought the other worth the effort, eh?) we overcame, and as I now often say, realized we generally were only refining our own take on any number of issues via the attack/counterattacks...that we were largely in agreement in spite of our words getting in the way (mine anyhow--those damn abbrev's and writing before thinking), and through that back and forth, we skipped the honeymoon phase (stop it Dire!) and went right to the comfortable old couple, if that metaphor isn't too disturbing to consider with your afternoon glass of wine (mayhaps?).

No! Very sorry for the confusion. Liam's wife's illness was a true tragedy.

A few years ago, after being put through the old LMA ringer, Liam started a thread under an alternate screen-name. The thread was entitled "Liam Finnegan is Dead". It was a hoax. A joke.

I apologize if others were confused by my post. I would never joke about such matters as Liam's wife.

Yes it was indeed tragic about his wife I felt so horrible.

Funny thing - I remember way before when he was going through a rough time and lashing out at Dire a bunch and flipped me crap a few times. And you know how it is around here someone picks on one of us we all circle the wagons, start a feeding frenzy, etc. In fact unfortunatly this is one of the reasons Ian left I think.

well through all that Liam came back and then when that personally tragedy happened to him we circled the wagons and embraced him because as stupid and corny as it sounds we are like one big dysfunctional family around here

I've noticed that the people who take the wise-cracking and grandstanding personally, tend to be the same people who become alienated within the forum. Then, they often do the lash-out-flame-out-dance and disappear in to the ether. And we never really know what their motives were.

This group ALWAYS gives rope to new posters. No bullies just because you're new here. But the regulars here don't pull punches either. It's sink or swim. Swim with just a smidgen of social grace. It's easy to make friends here.

So tight-knit, yes. But always welcoming the wandering deadhead who wishes to, dare I say, jam? Ooops. Wrong thread.

As Rob said, I sorta, kinda feel I woke up and acted like a grown up ("my way") whereas I used to feel somewhat "responsible" (though not exactly sure for what...Dire's drool? CLIFF's cranky fish comments?).

So, using that metric, I have contacted: 14. Hmmm, given my paranoia/privacy issues, that's a lot more that know my email that I would've ever guessed. Recall when Dire called me a "sally" for not posted my pic? I never should've let him get away with that...

I recall the incident you were referring to. Rest assured, no one here who knows you would think for a moment that you'd make light of someone else's loss.

Good Day rob . I hope things are well across the pond .

My point was obvious . However , I do not have the ability to simplify it . I do apologize for this state of affairs . I wish that I could more clearly communicate with those with special needs . Hopefully someone in the forum has been trained to help in these cases . I will pray for you .

Only the sun could have held me back from this refuge .

Hey you recall some comment you made a while back about not swinging for the fences every time? Well maybe it's about time you listened to your own advice. You see me as a challenge? Your problem - not mine. Lay on, Macduff.

Keep your pointless prayers for the believers and if you have me pegged as some jolly Falstaffian fat fuck then think again.

I knew you could not abide the prayer part . That was special , just for you .
Why do you think it's you , re : Falstaff ?
And that was a drag bunt . But you threw me out at first . Oh , well . All you can do is try .

Still playing the retrospective foresight shot, huh? No other plays to make? And save the disingenuous posturing for those who might be impressed by it. Raise your game.

Damn ! Fold .
See what can happen if you poke the bear , or lion , in this case ? That's one way this forum can be a bit intimidating .

rob , that's a sharp razor , deftly used .

i do have a preference toward a top being down

although a bottom up can also be quite enjoyable

(i suppose i am kinda vacillating between the two choices - sorry)

There are many more ways to jam your toast , dire . Why confine yourself ? I mean come on , do you need an instructional vid .

It's the small little f'ups that don't happen , almost but don't , that I appreciate more and more .

Well, since you may not have been around to read me blather on about it, and since it will surprise and shock Rob and Dire to hear me say it (read me write it?), by far my fav jam sequence is the entire 6 min OOne on 12-29-68. Nothing, IMHO, beats the intensity and odd noises so perfectly suited to that firestorm of a tune. Not that its CREAM, but you get the idea.

There, Micah; I did it.

MNC: pardon my forgetfullness, but do you mean to say you've been around long enough to recall my ceaseless drivel on the subject, or you independently were aware of it? Regardless, always nice to find a fellow Forumite that understands how special that "one" is...even if I have to accept I am posting on the DEAD once again.

I believe I've been here for about a year and a half now; used to be called "GennyBenni." I think I only actually announced that once, so it makes sense if you missed it.

I've definitely heard you talk about 12/29/68 several times; in fact, you're the one who turned me on to it in the first place.
